re: Python: Still in favor? VIEW POST


I used to use Python/C/OCaml which all didn't necessarily play well together. Python and OCaml both expect their own runtimes.

Now I use Python/Rust. Rust covers the C and OCaml use cases well enough and plays very well with Python.

Python is a nice high-level language that is somewhat slow and gets messy with larger projects. However, falling back to a compiled language that can generate Python libraries makes Python(3) really hard to beat.

Python&C++ or Python&Rust are probably most viable going forward.

By the numbers, Python is currently #1 most popular language AND gaining most % use on Github:
